Wow! Right from when we reached the top of the staircase thus place just felt, sort of, magical! Our entire family along with our guide trudged the steps to the top and the cave was just simply spectacular! Definitely bring your camera! I could've lived up there! If it was not for the fact that my family was with me,... More

A lovely experience but a difficult climb for some. The kids loved it and didn't have a problem - but there is a lot of climbing. Well worth a visit whilst in Kuching

Incredible cave that glowed as if really magical with luminous green ferns, water droplets that looked like diamonds falling down from the ceiling, and all sorts of shapes swirling about in the rock. You need a torch to get up the stairwell which was fairly secure - we managed to get our 6 year old up and down it and... More

Unfortunately I did not see the cave since we showed up after it had already closed for the day. The man working there told us that AS OF MARCH 15, 2014 THE CAVE CLOSES AT 4:00 PM DAILY! It used to stay open until 5:30 pm. I hope this information helps.

From the moment we got to the caves and saw the steps we had to climb to just get to the cave opening this had all the marks of an adventure. Having climbed the concrete steps you are then faced with another set leading steeply up into the front of the cave. The first view is amazing. It only gets... More

We went to the Wind Cave first, which I personally wasn't a big fan. The fairy cave however was worth the second trip as it's one of the most magical places I have been in. No pictures could justify the magnificent space and the formation that exists. I would recommend to get a taxi from Bau town, as we went... More

We rented a car and drove here after visiting the Wind Caves. Both are worth a trip as they are very different. We had the place to ourselves as it was a rainy Friday morning so was even better as we were free to check out the acoustics of the place! It's a beautiful cave and a great place to... More

Its a nice little side trip from Kuching. We caught a bus from Kuching and then a taxi from Bau. We organized for the taxi driver to come back and pick us up an hour later. An hour almost wasn't long enough. As mentioned in other reviews there are a lot of stairs and the railing on the wooden stairs... More

This is one of the more visually stunning caves that I have been to, I liken it to the mossy forest in the Cameron Highlands. The main cave is huge and well lit with brightly coloured Moss and plant life growing all around. Definitely worth a trip, also you can visit the wind cave at the same time if you... More
